The silence was___________
the silence was like the last autumn leaf
the silence was a cast of shadow..
really depends on how you would follow the lines or the idea you want to evoke.
Possible word to put in your “blank” is golden which makes this a simile ..with a simile you are usually saying something is like something else eg rose as red as blood. With a metaphor you are describing the thing as if it was something else eg the waves galloped up the shore.
hope this helps
an entity cascading through a realm noise.
like an empty library.
a room of mutes having a conversation.
the lull you get in the midst of a tornado.
a surreal concept in a word dominated by noise.
like the silence a mother hears upon checking her baby.
resonating amongst every cell in his/her brain, an unbearable hush that made her/him want to cry
like a prison with in a world without laws.
Thats all i can think of, good luck with whatever it is you are trying to achieve.
The silence was… empty; yet full of meaning.
…a feather floating through space.
